I have taken a deep look at the mentioned image ... and the conclusion is relative
clear. As far as I remeber the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests took place 
from the early 40's to about the mid 70's, and definitely ended about 1980.

The period of retarded warming perfectly fits into that period, which could strongly 
explain that period as a mild "nuclear winter".

The other source in the picture comment , "industrial pollution" seems to be not that
important, because the pollutants don't reach that high atmospheric levels that
the aerosols from nukes do, and as far as I remember are aerosols the more effective
the higher they are. 

That leads me to a somewhat speculative theory: If all the politicians fail to induce
a significant drop in CO2 emission to stop gobal warming within about the next 15
years, experts said that the effect could get self-sustaining by causing the oceans
to release CO2 due to higher water temperature. In that case, maybe an intended
"nuclear winter" could be the "last line of defense" against such an effect ?
